Romania June & July 2020

This is from Kevendi in Romania, he also sent pictures but I was not able to post them:
June 2020
"When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior. " Isa 43,2-3

Dear brothers and sisters, we greet you in the name of the Lord Jesus. We pray for you. We want to express our gratitude for supporting us in these difficult times. Thank you for your prayers and support.
We are all healthy. Nobody still knows when we can enter the prison. We look forward to serve again the Lord between the inmates, "To open their eyes..." Acts 26,18.

There are still many restrictions. Many institutions do not open, churches can operate, but with a limited number of participants.

We try to cultivate in our character an attitude worthy of the Lord. Whatever happens around us we want to see beyond the discouraging. The world we are used to living in so far is starting to fall apart. But our Savior shows us encouraging perspective. „Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world”- says Jesus. These days, I found a very good picture about this truth. Here are two possibilities for perceiving reality. I always want to be that right person.

"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Rom. 8,38-39

With love in Christ,
July 2020
"We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers" 1 Thess 1,2
Dear brothers and sisters, we greet you in the name of the Lord Jesus. In these troubled times we pray for you: May the Lord Jesus guard you and bless you abundantly.
We are well, healthy, we put all our hope in the goodness of God. We look forward to serving again, for the Lord would open the gates of the prisons.

Some good news: a former inmate was baptized during this period. Brother Viorel represented the prison ministry at this event. It is very encouraging, even a sign from the Lord that the work of the missionaries is not in vain.
Not only the detainees, but also some of their family members made a covenant with the Lord Jesus. Brother Dragu Angel officiated this service. He also uses our Bible courses in the church mission. 
"He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him" Psalms 126,6
God bless you all!
